The story starts here with the Goodness that accrued by following Srimad Bhagavad Gita..

The young man was too straight forward..

"I can't allow a wrong to happen in front of me.. Let me take the lead here and see to the end of this non sense drama right this moment!"

Thus he thought, got actively involved himself in questioning the wrong doers knowing little that they could put him down in no time, was soon snubbed beyond by the powerful in the game and finally had no go but to retreat.

Feeling sad he was directionless for a while not knowing what to do to uphold the righteousness around till a day when he incidentally happened to read the Sloka 35, Chapter III from Srimad Bhagavad Gita which boosted an indirect strength in him..

'Shreyan swadharmo vigunah paradharmaat swanusshthitaat
Swadharme nidhanam shreyah paradharmo bhayaavahah.'

'Ever safe is one’s own duty than the duty of another even well discharged. Better is even death in one’s own duty than the duty of another full of fear!'

The young man soon motivated by that Message, decided to go ahead in his life in that path which is said safe for him.

Thus the first Sacred Book Srimad Bhagavad Gita truly helped the man stabilize in his life diverting his mind towards his own duties in front!

And again moved on his life.. Soon, he was in mid thirties, life in front had become more alluring, more cheap advices were around him to divert his attention from the swadharma he vowed to follow, and that way, he slowly slipped into the wrong path as the related bad people surrounded him and held him tight there for a while. As riches and comforts started coming to his door step, the man had no go but to welcome them yielding beyond and in no time became haughty and authoritative in his surroundings.

That again had its own effect soon, when one day the then man of mid forties was straightaway cornered beyond and was made to shiver with fear for a while.. He had no go other than weeping in himself and equally was vehemently searching books for a solution for true peace in the situation.

On one of those troublesome days, as he was casually going thru' a few religious books for a desperate solution, the second Sacred Book 'Bhajagovindam' was spotted and again when he was having a quick glance thru' the same, Sloka 9 there captured his attention in respect of truthful living.

'sastangatve nissangatvam, nissangatve nirmohatvam
nirmohatve nischalatatvam,nischalatatve jeevanmuktih'

'From the company of seekers of truth non attachment develops, from non attachment comes freedom from delusion, from the freedom from delusion develops self steadiness and that self steadiness (alone) leads to true liberation (in one's life)!'

Greatly inspired by the Message there in, the man firmly decided immediately to get off from all that easy life and easy going people thru' some actions and sacrifices and that change itself made him closer a few good people in his own vicinity. As he thus started living with good people, the right interactions with them soon followed whose ultimate motive was ever to do good alone to the world and that path alone ultimately established theTrue Peace in the man for rest of his life!

Thus the second Book 'Bhaja Govindam' truly helped the man stabilize in his life the second time diverting his mind once again towards his own duties in front!

The story ends here with the Goodness that accrued once again by following Bhaja Govindam.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Part of Mahabharata in Sanskrit is traditionally ascribed to Sage Veda Vyasa and Bhaja Govindam Devotional Composition in Sanskrit is attributed to Sri Adi Shankara.
